My god, what a liar, & I didnt realise photos could be so inaccurate, lol!
He was hideously ugly, I mean really really ugly, & about 5 inches shorter than he said he was. He wanted to meet up in a supermarket coffee shop "so we can do our shopping afterwards" hmm WTF! He spent the whole time insulting me & everyone else in the place & going on about problems he`d had with previous single mothers asking him to pick up their kids etc etc. He walked me to my car, I gave him a peck on the cheek & he tried to make it more shock then he text me seconds after id pulled away in my car saying "interested?" I replied once id got home that he was a nice guy, but just as a friend. Thank god he hasnt replied.
Thats one off the list I suppose. LOL!!!! grin

everyone i have met from the net is never my cuppa tea. one was funny and sweet but just didnt fancy him!
Also met gorgeous looking bloke who basically said he wanted a friend he could have sex with now and then. hmm

One bloke had the shits all day and kept nagging and nagging that we go to a chemists and get liquid neurofen as he had such a sensitive stomach - WTF? then he took me to an awful restaurant where the pizza cost £1 and it was like chewing a bit of cardboard.

and he brought his mum with him, sort of, she trailed round all the shops behind us, with a blow up dinghy folded in her bag incase we wanted to out in the sea??!!!!!
i ended the date by slipping away mysteriously when he went to the loo blush

i vow not to do internet dating ever again.

ew ew ew allgonebellyup!! That sounds awful!

I too have had some spectacularly disasterous dates via the internet, where they turn out to be so much uglier than their picture, and shorter and fatter and duller too.

I burnt my throat gulping down a coffee so quickly in order to get away once, disappeared when another guy went to the loo, and faked emergency calls in order to get away! grin

But I've also met some lovely guys via the internet, some where relationships, some turned out to become wicked friends, so it's worth persevering!

I just know now that their photos are almost always better than they really look.

I met my current DP on
His photo actually put me off BUT I decided not to let it influence me.
So glad I didnt as he was my one & only blind date since exH left and still together 2 yrs on grin

prettyfly1 Sun 06-Jul-08 20:05:14

ahhh thats sweet. you do need to be so careful though. my ex is on line which is how i caught his cheating out. his pic is definately him and he is ok looking so no lies there but he says he has a job and one ds - lies he has two and doesn want to know mine and he has been unemployed with a mental illness for the last six months. he is incredibly charming and some poor woman is going to fall for that. if they havent already. sometimes i wish you could send men out with a health warning. definately put me off online dating!! My best mate however met an amazing man and got married this year from
. nicest guy you will ever meet so it can work out. just watch out for 6ft 5 1/2 thirty (this weekend) year olds who are happy to meet in working hours thats all i will say!!!!

SparklePrincess Sun 06-Jul-08 21:05:52

I was chatting to some other guy for hours on messenger, sent him a pic, & he sent his. We were going to arrange to meet up on thursday so I sent him my phone no. Not heard a thing since. Whats that all about? hmm

prettyfly1 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:06:43

its his much younger and better looking brother? there might be a good reason lovey but its not a good start!!!

lou33 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:14:27

i have never met anyone who has not looked just as their pictures, and luckily had no traumatising experiences as described on this thread

i have however met many who had personality transplants in between conversing on msn/phone, and meeting up face to face

met one today who was very appealing to me though

SparklePrincess Sun 06-Jul-08 22:17:07

Cool, are you meeting up again?

ManhattanMama Sun 06-Jul-08 22:19:45

I met DH on a dating website - and we're still going strong 4 years later! There are some crazy blokes out there, but some winners too grin

Just think - if YOU'RE online and normal, then there have to be some normal blokes on there as well!

lou33 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:21:49

yes we are, he has asked to cook for me

SparklePrincess Sun 06-Jul-08 22:31:20

Great news lou33.

Thanks ManhattanMama, smile Ill keep on looking. Only after friendship at the moment anyway, but if anything develops out of it id be happy with that too.

lou33 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:34:43

i think friendship is the best thing to look for, anything else then is an added bonus

prettyfly1 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:36:37

yeah i think thats a nice way to look at it. some really good you know what would be wicked as well but then i am a big old tramp bag so i would say that!!! grin grin

SparklePrincess Sun 06-Jul-08 22:38:29

I wouldnt have a problem with that either (it has been 9 months blush) but dont want to encourage the wrong sort.

Carmenere Sun 06-Jul-08 22:38:39

I met two great women this week who both had sourced their dp's from that Sarah Beeney site, the mysinglefriend one. I think it sounds good as your mate is going to play up your strong points and play down you weak points.

BexieID Sun 06-Jul-08 22:46:43

I've not done internet dating, but I did meet DP in a sci-fi chat room.

lou33 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:48:06

yeh but better to have sex with someone who you got on with as well as just lusted after grin

SparklePrincess Sun 06-Jul-08 22:51:25


prettyfly1 Sun 06-Jul-08 22:56:01

yeah thats true - then you can have actual fun time with them as well. i really dont want to go back the dark old days of enforced celibacy though! its been about a month and a half which isnt that bad but i am starting to climb the walls a bit. would be nicer if they were good company to though!
